    Body "X"
    From: Antoine Couëtte
    Date: 2016 Oct 30, 11:52 -0700

    Hello to all,

    2 nights ago, flying from JFK USA towards the Med. Sea, I spotted Lady Moon, Jupiter and a third "Body X" (less bright than Jupiter but still very visible) in the morning before sunrise.

    Moon Center - Jupiter - "Body X" were displaying a small triangle almost equilateral. See enclosed hand drawing figure.

    From the Moon and Jupiter Equatorial Coordinates, it was then fairly easy to guesstimate the coordinates of "Body X" to better than one degree.

    At 06:10 TU on Oct 28th, 2016 "Body X" approximate Equatorial Coordinates were accordingly: RA 12h46m and DEC -1°30'

    Any idea about the true identity of "Body X" ? A comet ??

    Kermit
